I bailed once I saw the phrase "climate change".
THIS ISN'T A COMMENT ON CLIMATE CHANGE. Just a general point.
Almost every single thing since has ever given us has been disproven.
I'm a scientist.
Have a good evening.
Now where the hell are my emojis???????????
The anti-science trend going on in my nation is truly depressing. Deeply shameful and frustrating stuff.
That cuts both ways...the willingness to manipulate "science" in support of questionable policy is deeply shameful and frustrating as well.
So many things I want to say...
Do you mean those knobs on the amplifier and guitar MOVE and change the way it sounds??????? I had no idea.
Even when it's written about fairies?
I think we're in danger of missing the point because we assumed that this was a science-based article in a scientific magazine. The article is written around not experimentation but around the thoughts of various people about ash and alder. If a guitarist has definite views, opinions or ideas on the topic they are just that, no one, including the person interviewed is claiming to be giving a scientifically proven fact. The guys talking on the topic of swamp ash cultivation and felling are giving their account of what they see happening on the ground.
The basic premise of the article is that Fender will be using less swamp ash, the reasons why and the views of some guitarists as to the situation. we can each draw our own conclusions as to how the very real situation will matter to us, if at all.
Are spec sheets still available for recent models?
I've had similar experiences and boy do I see your point. In time, I've gotten a little better at giving them a good "quote" that still captures what I want to say on the topic. Does not work every time, but it works sometimes…
Oh, BTW: IBTL!
Someone already answered for me by simply looking at a retail site online, I tried that with Sweetwater but they no longer carry the blonde version, the serial number didn't seem to help much either.
But Fender did finally return my email with all the specs for that model.
The wood is ash.
The biggest problem for Ash is the beetle, not climate change. The Ash beetle has decimated the trees in so many states that all the demand is putting pressure on remaining stocks that happen to be in the flooding areas. The angle on that story is the beetles arrived here with all the product imports on shipping pallets -- international trade imbalances and so on.
If the reporter were intent on a climate change/global warming story ... she really needs to dig into use of exotic lumber pulled from fragile rain forests. A huge potential story there as it impacts every guitar builder, and ironically the least effected is Fender since they use more domestic woods and could get by without exotic fretboards. Imagine the cries about toan wood if builders were restricted from using those materials.
Send her a note to dig a little more for follow up stories she'll need for future publication.
whoa...let's leave fairies out of this...I want to believe!
And why not, ‘taken’ I think in the early 20th Century and only confirmed a fake years later.
